Walking groups



These social walking groups are a great opportunity to get out and about and stay fit.  Organised and run by volunteers, each group has a slightly different focus and membership base. Walk 'n' Talk will suit people who would like to take time to smell the roses while MEDALS is ideal for power walkers - read on for more details.

Walk 'n' Talk
This group meets on a Monday morning for a walk of around 3-4 km at a restful pace with plenty of chance to chat. The cuppa at the end of the walk is just as essential as the walk!

Meet at Diamond Creek - Melways ref Map 11 K6, meet in the carpark behind the Shell garage

MEDALS walking group Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays

MEDALS walking group Tuesdays and Thursdays

Join one of these groups of regular power walkers.  Those participating keep themselves fit while also having lots of fun. There's always a coffee at the end of the walk too.

Each walk is between 6 and 8 kms long and takes around an 1 hour to complete. The group rotates through five different walks and always has a starting point where there is ample parking space. Join as a group member and attend as many walks as you wish.  All scheduled walk dates fit within regular school terms while holiday walk dates are also confirmed prior to the end of each term.

Starting Points
The name MEDAL walking group is an acronym for the starting points for each of the 5 walks.
